I guarantee they will be up for it and in our faces so we have to match them step for step.

"We've been doing well lately so hopefully we can continue our form," Frank exclusively told WednesdayWorld.

"It is going to be another tough one, they are down there fighting for their lives as we were last year and they will do anything they can to win the game. We have to be up for the fight.

"We have been doing well although Plymouth was a bit of a dull game with not much in it. I guarantee Saturday won't be like that, they will be up for it and in our faces so we have to match them step for step. If we do that, we have players who can change the game." Sheffield Wednesday
